Protesters of Ayers speech were labeled as ‘members of the Tea Party by local media filming the event.

Bill Ayers says the Weather Underground was not a terrorist organization because it did not kill people, it destroyed property but did not kill people. Although Discover the Networks points out that Ayers’ girlfriend died building a bomb to kill soldiers:

In 1970, Ayers’ then-girlfriend Diana Oughton, along with Weatherman members Terry Robbins and Ted Gold, were killed when a bomb they were constructing exploded unexpectedly. That bomb had been intended for detonation at a dance that was to be attended by army soldiers at Fort Dix, New Jersey. Hundreds of lives could have been lost had the plan been successfully executed. Ayers attested that the bomb would have done serious damage, “tearing through windows and walls and, yes, people too.”

In 1995 Ayers — whose stated educational objective is to “teach against oppression” as embodied in “America’s history of evil and racism, thereby forcing social transformation” — founded a “school reform organization” called the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC). He appointed Obama as the group’s first chairman.
